In a great new article from our affiliates at Hitfix, they take a closer look at Woody Harrelson’s latest film Rampart giving Woody praise for his performance.
According to Hitfix :
Harrelson said he went on a ride along with LAPD officers as preparation for the role of “the most corrupt cop you’ve ever seen on screen,” as the tagline on the poster puts it. And being a “happy hippy,” he didn’t think he’d be all that believable as such a corrupt, authority figure persona. When he first tried on the uniform, he said it felt like a Halloween costume.
But regardless of those early doubts, he settled into the role and delivered perhaps his greatest performance to date. It was an emotionally taxing shoot and both Harrelson and Larson admitted that it was difficult to shake their characters at the end of the day, but it was all worth it if the end result is a film as powerful as “Rampart.”
Will Harrelson net some Oscar recognition? One can only hope.
